CBX32MV Variable Speed, Multi-position Air Handler

High-efficiency evaporator coil provides excellent heat transfer and efficiency.

Variable speed blower motor allows enhanced humidity control, improved air quality and more consistent temperature for added comfort.

Optional electric heat adds supplemental heat for increased comfort.

Insulated blower compartment uses extra-thick insulation to minimize operating sound.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 27 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product was affordable, efficient, and quiet! This product replaced our old one. It is affordable, efficient, and very quiet. August 1, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by On hot day unit could only bring inside temperature to 79 degrees. This unit was installed today 07/14/2014, in Montgomery, Alabama and the outside temperature was around 95 degrees fahrenheit, and humidity was 63%. I set the temp to 73 degrees. The unit never cooled below 79 degrees. I definitely expected better than that. July 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A Air Handler which really moves air - what a difference it makes. Quiet and really delivers on the term "Air Handler". When first started up on a 90 degree day we felt the delivery of AC throughout the house in a way we never had with the previous system. June 24, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by So Far So Good We have only had the system for a few weeks, but our June electric bill is very promising. No only is it lower than I expected, it is lower than I have ever seen it in the month of June. We have two units and once they were properly adjusted, they have done a great job at maintaining the temperature in the house. They also do very well at controlling humidity, maintaining it right around 45% - in Florida during the summer!! If there were any complaint it would be that they blow so hard at times that it makes me think the wind is blowing hard outside. I suppose that is all part of doing such a great job at maintaining temperature and humidity. I'll put up with the sound in exchange for comfort any day. June 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Keeping the upper level cool Doing well at cooling the upper level but was a bit more expensive than we anticipated and is noisier than the old unit June 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is an excellent product When in normal mode, maintaining set temperature, I have a hard time determining if the unit is running. It is that quiet. We live in Southeast Texas, if anybody has been in this area, you know how stifling it can get. Simply amazing. When I am at work, the wife usually has the temperature set at 74-75 degrees. When I go to bed, I like it cooler. I'll set it at 70, and when I do, I can hear the air handler ramping up. It is impressive how well the unit cools. In 15 minutes or less it is at set temperature. I can't say enough about this unit. June 19, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by maximize noise and reduce efficiecy They advertise "maximize efficiency and reduce sounds", but they maximize noise and reduce efficiency. My energy usage is more than double the average for comparable homes in my area. February 5, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Long Downtime with Variable Speed Motor We actually have the Lennox G60UHV(X) gas furnace but this was the closest match I found to that unit so I'm adding my comments here. We've had our furnace for 5 years and in general have been very happy with it. However, we woke up today to no heat and the company that installed it found that the variable speed motor had died. There are none to be found anywhere near here and the soonest delivery is Thursday from the factory. As luck would have it, we're heading into temps around 0 through the rest of this week and a broken furnace will make it rough. There may be better part availability with the newer models but it's probably worth investigating when buying a new furnace. February 3, 2014
